What do you do with your Class C motorhome in the off-season? What is the most secure place to keep your fifth wheel trailer? What kind of security do you need to have in place? These are questions every Class C motor home owner needs to answer.
Can you park it in your driveway?
The answer is yes, and no. In some communities, parking your Class B motorhome in the driveway is prohibited. These communities feel that an RV lounging in your driveway is an eyesore. If you are permitted, consider these things:
- If your vehicle is out doors, and your driveway is gravel, or dirt, you are likely inviting rodents and insects to nest in your travel trailer.
- You should consider purchasing a cover for your motor home to minimize the wear and tear of seasonal weather.
- Recognize that a lone RV in your driveway with no cars in sight may signal to criminals that you are not home.
Using storage facilities
- Investigate several facilities, and check out their business reputation. Not all storage managers are honest. Ask around.
- Know that you may not be able to keep the keys to your Class A motorhome. The manager of the facility may take your keys, and depute an employee to park your vehicle in the building.
- Find out what amenities are included.
- Check to see how much time they need to have your rig ready for you to take out.
